Commercialization Done Differently: How Swedish university incubators facilitate the formation of knowledge-intensive entrepreneurial firms
The role of universities has always been considered important. Historically, they conducted research and educated students. Recently they have gained a third mission, namely to interact with society in other ways. This includes to create economic growth in a more direct way than before, e.g. knowledge transfer. It is in this context my study takes place. I look into how knowledge in the form of ideas from researchers and others undergo a commercialization process under the protective wing of the university.
